Yes. A fun story that kept my attention and maybe catch a few things I might've missed the first time through.
I wanted to see where Dane and Bones would end up next.
Good pace with clear wording. Dialogue sounded like a conversation or discussion should.
Not an extreme reaction other than I enjoyed it.
Bones's sister (Angelica) added an additional dimension to the story. combined with Jade's participation added fun banter, and tension that allowed for a better mystery to be built up and resolved.
Yes, especially if they had an interest in WW II.
His voice varied enough to make the soldiers being discussed or 'talking/telling their story' stand apart.
Well worth the listen. Although I suspect each listener will come away with specific remembered parts, overall the gritty nature of war and the struggles faced by soldiers on both sides is well portrayed.
Yes. It is a solid action-packed novel, without with a minimal dose of sexual content, especially compared to works as the series continued.
The interaction between Anita and Edward.
This is my favorite of the Anita Blake novels. I stopped reading/listening after the 7th, as the content moved away from action and far more toward sexual content that I have no interest for. What can be easily skipped over in text is far more difficult in the audio format. Just not for me.
I enjoyed the broad variety of topics covered, especially the historical discussions.
No. The content was such that it inspired you to think and ponder what the author said or asserted.
A worthwhile read for those of strong faith, those who are questioning their faith and even those who are not of any faith but are curious and would listen with an open mind, to be convinced or not convinced--not through Scripture, but through logic and what noted atheists have to say on the various topics discussed.
The novel is written almost as a "How to" survive a collapse, with frequent instances of narrative on how to do something, what equipment or firearms were selected and why, etc. While informative, it slowed down the story. But I guess inclusion was part of the author's purpose. So a blend of non-fiction and fictional application.
Yes, I'd recommend Outlaws to a friend (actually I have).
It's a good story, with likable characters--and dislikeable for the gang members. Plenty of action and build up to a good climax.
Josh, the retired cop, and the rural setting.
He was consistent and had good pacing.
No, no extreme reactions. Made me smirk and chuckle a few times but no all out laughter.
I'd say, listen to the sample and read the description. If any part of them catch even a little bit of your interest, you'll really enjoy the story.
I thought it was neat that Doyle's The Lost World was part of the clue pattern, but I enjoyed most how the story progressed, building upon clues and findings that led to the lost city and its secrets.
Dane Maddock--he (Kafer) has the attitude and tone right on target.
Very much worth the listen.
It'd be okay to pick this one up even if you've not listened to any of the previous novels in the series. Even though references are made to previous adventures, they're not vital to know and are easily followed/understood within the context of the current novel (Quest), so it stands alone well.
To those who I believe would enjoy Brust's Vlad Taltos series (those I've not already suggested it to), I might recommend the audiobook, but really I'd lean more to recommending the novel.Maybe after having read the novels in this series, the voices, tone and inflection used, just seemed off. This was most notable with Morrolan, and especially for Kragar. The droll, sort of stuffy voice just didn't seem to fit for the banter between them and Vlad. Everyone else worked okay, but these two important characters just didn't work, and detracted from the story for me.
Vlad working to initially fit in with the veteran soldiers of his company.
The narrator, Bernard Clark, is good, just not right--or didn't create the right voices--for this work--at least as I listened to it.
I couldn't do better than the tag line on the back cover of Brust's novel:
When the Dragonlord Morrolan hired me to guard a cache of sorcerous weapons, I never suspected I would end up in the thick of battle, where no self-respecting assassin ought to be--and worse, on the losing side. But that's what comes of consorting with Dragons...
Dragon is my favorite novel in the series. That's why I selected it to give a shot with the audiobook version.
I found the scene with Griff Leher, a quirky alien analyst, (my favorite character in the novel) when he found himself forced to step forward during the President’s war council if Earth would have any hope to survive the anticipated alien re-invasion to be the best in the novel. Captain Coalbridge stepping forward and offering bold support of Leher set the stage for the rest of the novel.
His pacing seemed on target.
A solid SF/Space Adventure novel.
I liked the perspective of Kenan. Cynical and and fatalistic while searching for the point of it all. He wasn't some super dude. Just a guy trying to survive and find his way.
Chap was the character he (Kafer) did best. His voice for Kenan was decent but he did better with Chap.
There are both funny and sad parts, and as a listener I felt for Kenan in his struggles, triumphs and losses.
Originally I read the novel and really enjoyed it (as did my daughter). Decided to get an audiobook version and definately wasn't disappointed.
